Steering problem
1988 Vauxhall Vectra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 102000 miles

The steering and ignition lock key will not turn, have spent hours trying to get it unlocked, have been told that to fit a new barrel lock I have to first get the old lock turned to the second setting and incert a wire in a small hole at the side then it will slide out, but I'm unable to get the key turned, will I have to us force? Hope you can help.

You will have to drill the old lock out i'm afraid if you cannot get it to turn. Try using a little WD40 down the inside of the lock barrel
